PhD Studentships: Music Related Research (Open University)


The Open University offers up to two full-time, 3 year PhD studentships (to start 1 October 2009)

Music-related research at the OU encompasses a wide range of approaches (including historical, social, empirical and technological methods) with a distinctive emphasis on innovation and interdisciplinary research. We welcome applications for PhD studentships in any of our areas of strength, which include

* Social and cultural theory and analysis (including ethnomusicology,sociology, social psychology, human geography)
* Historical study (including documentary and archival research)
* Empirical investigation of performance
* Music computing (including Music Computing and Pervasive Interaction; the design and evaluation of new tools for performance, composition, analysis &education)
* Musical acoustics
* Music education and pedagogy

Projects which will benefit from supervision across traditional disciplinary boundaries (e.g. ethnomusicology and psychology, acoustics and historical musicology, or music computing or sociology) are particularly encouraged. Also encouraged are proposals with links to one of our existing research groups or collaborative projects (for details of these, and of our research facilities, go to the web address below).

Potential candidates are urged to make contact as soon as possible, in order to discuss and develop a project with support from potential supervisors prior to submission. Informal enquiries are encouraged to Prof. Martin Clayton, Director of Music Research (m.r.l.clayton@open.ac.uk)

For detailed information and to apply email s.a.parsons@open.ac.uk or telephone 01908 653280.

Closing date: 21 July 2009
